This may be the world’s goofiest drone, but we’re fascinated.

Drones are a dime a dozen now, but not this one. The Bionic Bird moves with the grace of a bird—literally.

This drone is designed to look like a bird, and engineered to mimic its motion in flight. 

Keep this one away from your cats: each Bionic Bird is engineered to not only prototype a real bird, but can also be expertly controlled from your smartphone. You can fly with absolute control both indoors and outdoors at speeds of up to 20km/hr.

The Bionic Bird perches on an egg-shaped charger, because of course it does. Highly portable, you can recharge your bird in just 12 minutes, meaning you can spend more time flying and less time, uh, perched. 

You can get the Bionic Bird from the Daily Dot store for $50 off — just $99.95, marked down from the regular $149.95.
